Detectives were trying to interview the woman at the local police station. “So far, she hasn’t said anything,” NYPD Department Chief Kenneth Corey said. the mother was found alone. The police sent a helicopter and marine units. The children were found at the water’s edge shortly after 4:30 a.m. on a quiet section of the beach about 13 blocks from the stadium where the Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball team plays its games. Efforts to revive the children at a nearby hospital failed, Corey said. Police did not immediately identify the children or the 30-year-old mother. No decision had been made as to what criminal charges she might face. The children’s bodies were found just three blocks from the woman’s apartment building, where police had first gone when the search began. Corey said officers searched the beach and boardwalk, searched neighborhood streets and checked the local hospital for the children before the mother was found on the boardwalk. As they continued to search the area, police found a shoe in the water and put it in a bag as evidence. A security official at the building where the mother and children lived said the family moved in less than a year ago. Corey said the mother had not previously been reported to authorities for abusing or neglecting her children.
